LPGA rookie Hannah Yun Hits ISPS Handa with High Hopes

Is it just me or does it seem like forever since we’ve watched the ladies tee it up on the LPGA? Three months off the radar is much too long IMHO, so I’m excited that finally we’ll see the ladies in action at the 2012 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, February 6-12.

A free Valentine’s Gift for the golfer you love

I’m not a big fan of January.  The excitement of  Xmas is over and all we have to look forward to is snow, sleet and freezing rain.  Oh and did I mention darkness?  It’s dark when I leave for work and dark when I come home at night.  And to top it off there are no more statuatory holidays until March.
